This is a great opportunity for job security and different insurance packages. The environment within however, is beyond anything ever experienced. If you are not ready to be around adults still conducting themselves as high schoolers DO NOT apply. The culture is degrading and the unions are absolutely worthless.
Rural carrier position is a fun position, it is a stressful job due to large rural carrier routes. Things I'm learning at this job are different streets and areas of the city in which I live. Work atmosphere is fun and educational.
Decent job if you are young, don't wait until after you are 40 to start carrying mail, pay is decent but not worth the work strain, management is amazing...at my office anyhow, I could not ask for a better boss!!!
